A guide to NDIS traineeships using group training

A new resource has been developed to help NDIS providers understand the GTO model and the benefits it can offer the sector. A guide to NDIS traineeships using group training was developed by the Community Services Industry Alliance on behalf of WorkAbility Qld as part of a Jobs Queensland-funded NDIS Workforce Research Project.

The research project found that the GTO model has much to offer NDIS providers as part of the sector’s efforts to build their future workforce. However, awareness of the GTO model amongst providers is low, as is the use of group training for disability support worker traineeships.

The guide represents a first step towards raising awareness of the GTO model amongst NDIS service providers. A report has also been provided to Jobs Queensland, which offers suggestions for further work to establish group training as a valuable part of the sector’s approach to workforce development.
